My Cobalt Blue and White Dreams

Thursday, March 17, 2016 No comments

Lately, most of my closest friends and batch mates have been getting married! Every time I go on Facebook, my feed gets all stuffed with wedding and pre-nup photos, bridal showers and wedding inspo. I can't help but think of my own wedding day too. I just turned 26 this year and I feel like getting married is something that I would want for myself. So I asked myself, If I were the one getting married, what would I want for my my own wedding? I thought of a theme that suits my taste - a Cobalt Blue and White themed wedding. I've got some inspo right off of WWW. 


Cobalt Blue really adds energy and a playful vibe when combined with white. It also gives the theme an overall calming look. It just looks elegant to me. Do you agree?

Reefer jacket - The US Navy design is one which has stood out for quite a while and, this winter season is no different. It can easily be dressed up with a nice pair of slacks and a blouse or dressed down with jeans. It goes well with boots or other winter shoes as well.

How to find that perfect party dress

No comments
For women, the right dress is going to stand out in a crowd. If you are in search of the perfect party dress, what should you look for? Of course depending on the type of party and occasion, and the guests who will attend, the perfect dress will vary in each case. There are loads of catalogues online which you can visit to find the perfect dress. These are a few things to consider when you are deciding on the right dress, and want to find the perfect fit and style for the event. 

Consider the length - If you are wearing heels, a shorter length will help accentuate the legs and backside. For longer dresses, flats might be the best option, so they won't detract from the dress and style itself. Keep in mind accessories you will wear as well, to ensure the dress is the focal point of the outfit. 

Consider the fabric - Look for flowing materials, softer fabrics, and those which cling but don't stick. You want form fitting, but don't want to sweat or feel uncomfortable wearing the dress. So, keep this in mind when trying on fabrics. 

Colour combination - Make sure you find the right colour. Match it with the shoes, the accessories, hair pieces, and other items you will wear or carry (such as a purse). Make sure the dress flows well, and that the colour isn't too overwhelming when chosen. 

Of course the size, the fit, and accentuating accessories or pieces on the dress also have to be taken into consideration. Depending on the occasion, one dress might be more appropriate than others, so also keep this in mind when dress shopping. Ultimately, the perfect dress will differ for each woman, body type, and occasion. These are a few factors to consider however, no matter when you are wearing the dress, or what the occasion is that you are going to be wearing it for.
